Author Biography

Fiona Couillard, University of Calgary

Fiona Couillard is a Calgary based visual artist currently pursuing an MFA at the University of Calgary and holding a BFA with distinction from the Alberta University of the Arts. Her practice explores patriarchy and its relationship to trauma, conflicts of identity, and loss of voice, and the resulting concerns of belonging.

Couillard employs oral history and self-reflection to inform her work and engage participants in questioning systemic power within their own lives.

Couillard works in printmaking, sculpture and paint, using abstraction in a continuing dialogue between conceptualization and the formal aspects of materials, considering their gendered associations.

She has received many awards and scholarships including a Recent Alberta Foundation for the Arts scholarship, and an Alberta Graduate Excellence Scholarship for her ongoing research. Her work has been featured as part of the Hear/d Mental Health Residency, The AUArts summer residency “Placemaking”, and the Marion Nicoll Gallery, among others.
